True Confessions of a TV Rookie
David Mitchell of Pinckney MI was a coach at the first Nike Indoor Nationals in 1999 when he received a "battlefield commission" as an announcer. He is an experienced announcer now, but he never did TV before this year's NIN in Maryland. Read about his experience.

3 wise men
As the meet wound down Sunday, we spotted Mike Byrnes, Larry Byrne and Jim Spier chatting in the infield and realized this trio combines 100 years of high school track knowledge and service to the sport. Mike, NIN meet director emeritus, is co-founder of the National Scholastic Sports Foundation. Larry, meet historian, is a long time official and the high school statistics guru of the Northeast. Jim, NIN meet director, is co-founder with Mike of NSSF, which pioneered the national high school championship concept and currently runs four national meets -- Nike Indoor, Nike Outdoor, Nike Team Nationals (cross country), and the Great American Cross Country Festival. -- John Dye


When the St. Ursula Academy girls of Cincinnati arrived at NIN Saturday, they found themselves parked next to the DyeMobile. So there was nothing to do except have coach Jeff Branhan take their picture with "DyeStat"

Olympians talk to kids at Friday night clinic
“Everything I've ever accomplished was based on hard work,” Olympic long jump king Dwight Phillips told his audience of eager-eyed listeners. “Whatever you put in, that's what you're going to get out; my biggest disappointment helped me accomplish my greatest achievement.”
SETS clinic Friday night - Learn Speed - Endurance - Technique. Meet Olympic coaches.


7th edition of this meet presented by the founders of the modern national high school championships - the National Scholastic Sports Foundation . This is the meet's fifth year at the Prince George's County Sports and Learning Center (PG Sportsplex) in Landover MD next to the Washington Redskins stadium.
